As viewers and fans, we’re pretty psyched by the fact that New Girls Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) have decided to give their new relationship a real shot, but apparently at least one other occupant of the loft doesn’t approve of those two lovebirds being together.

We already know that Jess’ sister will cause problems for the new couple, but according to TV Guide, Schmidt (Max Greenfield) also has his doubts and even tries to force the pair apart!

Schmidt is actively trying to break them up, so they're battling Schmidt too,” executive producer Liz Meriwether revealed. “They have a lot going against them and we'll see if they can make it."

In addition to obstacles from outside sources, Nick and Jess will also cause problems for each other."They're still dealing with all those issues," Liz continues, pointing specifically to Nick’s unwillingness to get his life together.

Schmidt has previously voiced his concern for Nick and Jess’ relationship, but are you surprised that he will actively try and pull them apart in Season 3? Weigh in below!
